In Switzerland, more and more assets are being inherited, according to newspaper reports CHF 94 billion this year alone. A clear regulation of the succession and, under certain circumstances, a transfer of part of the assets during one's lifetime prevent gruelling inheritance disputes.

On the one hand, an overview is given of the current status of civil law structuring options. On the other hand, the tax law aspects are presented in depth and explained using practical examples. Cross-border aspects and the use of trusts and foundations for estate planning will also be addressed.
